Cahill’s work explores the fragile and impermeable through the juxtaposition of dissimilar materials in her work, such as steel and silk, making it clear that strength should not be judged by perception alone. Her new work, which will be debuted at SPECTRUM Miami, is a concise collection of sculptural embroidery with a definite contemporary edge. With Sphere 30, Cahill employs embroidery with vivid sculptural effects -- rich blue, greens and silvers permeate delicate silk suspended within a dissected sphere of stainless steel.

Suspended over a highly polished base of metal, the sphere appears to glow from within. The center rings of Sphere 30 (48 W X 80 L X 45 H inches) are some of the largest embroidered areas to ever have been produced. Being shown for the first time, See no Evil, highlights three Japanese ladies embroidered on almost translucent silk in a folding screen of maple and brushed aluminum. The ladies gaze from the screen intently, watching but not passing judgment as they speak, see and hear no evil.

 

Cahill has exhibited extensively this year in the United States and abroad including Apricot Gallery London, UK; Amsterdam International Art Fair; Governor’s Island Art Fair, New York City; Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Los Angeles California; and Art San Diego, San Diego California
